The Tiruchi Corporation has announced that all unauthorised advertisement hoardings put up by private agencies in the city should be removed within three days.

In a statement issued here, Corporation Commissioner V.P.Thandapani said all hoardings put up in private buildings and public places without obtaining approvals should be removed immediately.

Similarly, all hoardings whose licence period has expired should also be removed forthwith.

If the agencies failed to remove such hoardings by themselves, the Corporation would remove the same as per government order.

Though the hoardings were removed sometime back based on the direction of the Supreme Court, hoardings have been put up in some places without authorisation. Hoardings should be put up only in conformity with government rules and with proper approvals, he said.
